This content was provided by Dr. Meadors "I really like what I do. It's challenging. It's very gratifying and it's also very humbling. There is a lot of affirmation that we receive from our patients. One of my motives to come back to Little Rock, in 1991, was to provide the people of Arkansas with state-of-the-art care right here in this city, my home, without them having to leave our great state of Arkansas, at CHI St. Vincent, the same hospital where I was born. They have the same vision at the Jack Stephens Heart Institute, to provide the best care available. The task of caring for patients with heart disease is life-saving; it's what I look forward to when I get up in the morning."

Very condescending man. Would not listen to us and kept talking over us. Staff was incompetent as it took three times and multiple persons for an IV to be placed accurately.

Dr. Meadors is a likable person, not the most talkative, business like surgeon. I had an abdominal aortic aneurysm repair graft. It's not the most pleasant procedure, to say the least, and takes approximately 5 to 6 weeks just to get your strength back. My recovery was uneventful. His nurse was...more
